Pastor carries on to serve the lord wholeheartedly

By ‘Mamohaila Rampo


As he continues to serve the Lord with dedication, through accepting Christ as his personal Savior, Global Evangelism Ministries (GEM) Director Rev. Dr. Joseph Mpakanyane is also accumulating massive titles.

A few months ago, Mpakanyane got an Honorary Doctorate Degree from the Word Christian University in America. In an interview with Informative Newspaper, he said what made him get recognition from such an upright and worthy institution is a result of his 15years of outstanding work as God‘s servant. In those years he has been working on spreading the word in and out of the country.

Looking at his educational background, Mpakanyane has always been driven. Born the eldest of seven siblings, he had to be the patriarch of the family when his father left home to make ends meet in South Africa (SA) in the mines, he started school a bit late because he herd cattle, nonetheless, that did not demotivate him. At nine years old, Mpakanyane started school

He says herding cattle was an isolating and often-frightening assignment that delayed the normal pace of his early education. But his determination and intelligence enabled him to make a quick come back. He still worked well in school, always attaining the best marks. Sadly, his mother died forcing him to carry the burden of caring for his siblings on his shoulders. Providentially, through his accomplishments as a hard worker, he earned the largest financial scholarship, enabling him to continue his studies at Mount Tabor Secondary School.

Joseph’s passionate surrender to God was repeatedly confirmed when he was called into ministry, trained at Bible College, got Married, raised his remarkable family, and received an International Diploma in Restorative Justice from Queens University in Canada. He has impacted hundreds of lives through GEM, Theological Education by Extension (TEE) and as the Executive Director of Prison Fellowship Lesotho (PFL), for which he has received national recognition from the Government of Lesotho.

In his youth, Mpakanyane had earnestly prayed; “Lord, make me a channel of blessing.” In His divine response, God’s hand continues to rest firmly on Joseph’s life, using him to profoundly influence others for time and eternity.
